  •        Mayo Clinic on Aspirin - PASS IT ON 


    Dr. Virend  Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic,  who is lead author of the report in the July  29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the  American College of Cardiology. 

    Most  heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6  A.M. and noon.  Having one during the night,  when the heart  should be most at rest, means  that  something unusual happened. Somers and his  colleagues have been  working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.  
                
    1.    If  you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a  day, take it at  night. The reason:  Aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life"; therefore,  if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours  of the morning, the Aspirin would be  strongest in your system. 

    2. FYI,  

    Aspirin lasts a really long time in your  medicine chest for years, (when it gets old,  it smells like vinegar). 

    Please read on.  

    Something that we can do to help  ourselves - nice toknow.Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on  the tongue. They work much faster than the  tablets.
               
    Why  keep Aspirin by your bedside? It's about Heart  Attacks - 

    There are other symptoms of a  heart attack, besides the  pain on the left  arm. One must also be aware of an intense  pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots  of sweating; however, these symptoms may  also occur less frequently. 

    Note: There  may be NO pain in the chest during a heart  attack. 

    The majority of people (about  60%) who had a heart attack during their  sleep did not wake up. However, if  it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from
     your deep sleep. 

    If that happens,  immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow  them with a bit of water. 

    Afterwards:

  • - Call 911. 
    - Phone a neighbor or a  family member who lives very close by. 
    - Say  "heart attack!" 
    - Say that you have taken 2  Aspirins. 
    - Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the  front door, and wait for their arrival and  
                
    ...DO  NOT LIE DOWN!
